  • It remains an emotive, sensuous and visually arresting work despite the unnecessary tinkering.

  • It looks great, for sure: demonic cityscapes, lysergic mind-trips and aestheticised military hardware. And it's admirably grown-up in its aspiration too.

  • Mamoru Oshii's digitally tweaked, colour- corrected and otherwise "enhanced" version of his 1995 anime classic remains as visually ravishing and bafflingly opaque as ever.

  • It remains a powerful and intelligent film and looks to become all the more relevant as we drift into a future played out in series of noughts and ones.

  • Classic noir sci-fi anime has violence, profanity, nudity.

    Nov 17, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • ... an odd hybrid of the original film and the slick 3D computer animation scenes, which is great for the cyber-imagery but... has less personality when it is used on the characters...
